So far my favorite is Red Bird, it takes three days to get to me from Montana to North Carolina and the postage for two pounds is $8.00, but if you order it at 5 pounds then shipping is free. Any of their beans are free shipping if you order it at 5 pounds, he also includes a piece of chocolate for every pound you order but in the warmer months it's hard candy I think. I've tried several of his blends and they are all good but I like his Red Bird the best

Redbird is pretty good.  Sometimes it has been finicky with the grind.   It's not my favorite, but the shipping is reasonable & the owner is awesome to deal with.  I really, really, (Did I say REALLY) cannot have more than 1 1/2 lbs. at one time.  I have a really, really (over 20 years old) fridge/freezer.  It doesn't freeze beans well.....at all.  Trust me, I had to dump a whole pound of beans out cuz it put so much moisture in the beans that I couldn't find a grind that worked.  I'm not gonna invest in a small freezer for just coffee beans.
Barrington Gold has been one of my favorites, but will be far and few in between me ordering it unless they can do something about their ridiculous shipping fees ($8.75).  Up until about 2 months ago, it was $6.75.  They say that's the best deal they can get.  It's with FedEx.  FedEx has always been overpriced as far as I'm concerned.
I like Ambrosia (Caffe Fresco) a lot also.   Redline is pretty good, but seems to start going stale quicker.  Next time think I will order The Sermon again.  I liked the blueberry in it.
